Q&A with Turkish youth activists Gamze and Sehriban about their activism in Turkey with filmmaker Ayfer Ergun.

All over the world, standing up for human rights is becoming increasingly dangerous. Now more than ever, human rights defenders are being subjected to intimidation, smear campaigns, violence and imprisonment. And each year, more and more activists are killed. In order to inspire young people to stand up and support these brave people, Amnesty created a teaching materials package about young human rights activists called BRAVE! The package features personal stories from activists from Tanzania, Russia, Pakistan and Turkey. A short film on two young human rights defenders from Turkey will première during the Movies that Matter Film Festival. The activists will be in attendance during the première and will take part in a Q&A with pupils.

Filmmaker: Ayfer Ergün
